Game 14: #15 VCU 87 Toledo 78

18 Nov

#15 VCU got all they could handle from Toledo including trailing by three at the half.  The Rams however led 73-72 before going on a 9-0 run late to put the game away leading to an 87-78 win.

The Ram’s “havoc” defense caused 21 Toledo turnovers which they turned into 31 points.  Treveon Graham and Melvin Johnson led the team offensively with 22 points apiece and Briante Weber was once again the king of the stat sheet with 18 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and nine of the team’s 16 steals.

Toledo played as well as they could, hanging with VCU for nearly 40 minutes.  The Rockets had four guys in double figures with J.D. Weatherspoon’s double-double, 11 points and 10 rebounds.  Nathan Boothe added 18 points and eight rebounds and Julius Brown had 17 in a losing effort.
